For the longest time, women of color have had trouble when purchasing makeup, lipstick included, that looks the same on their skin tone as it does on the fair skin models that advertise it.
It's a tad frustrating to say the least because you think a nude lippie you buy is going to be..well..nude! Then you realize that my nude is different from her nude and her nude isn't the same as the young lady's over there.
Cocoa Swatches has come to ease this frustration.
This free app is designed to give pictorial reviews of what different makeup look like on women of color.
For us makeup feigns, this is a breath of fresh air.
You can search, swipe through and screenshot all you want and it actually does help.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipstick is a new favorite of ours and Cocoa Swatches has it covered!
You can bookmark any post you like and there's a Cocoa Pick on the main page that highlights a product that each member behind Cocoa Swatches recommends or loves that week.
